british brands were just bought up by another american company in fact even thames water which comes out of every single tap in and around london now belongs to an australian company advocates of foreign takeovers say they inject much needed cash into the british economy recently with premier foods not only selling off. selling off. some people and also closing down some of their home. and you know it's interesting what's the reaction a great use for investors although it is bleak news just before chris. for the workforce two years ago kraft the u.s. food giant swallowed up cadbury's chocolate it was a hostile takeover they slashed four hundred jobs and moved production to poland in the process but there are those that say that the loss of sweets is the least of britain's problems and the loss of control over ports to in this country and around
1:04 am
the world where we have a huge network of of good international ports i think is a very serious matter the loss of control over our airports the loss of control particularly over our energy companies which means decisions about our energy could control in supply and not made in london there maybe in paris in the or overseas tax havens such as in switzerland when companies take over they often move their headquarters away from the u.k. or look for better advantages in terms of the tax system a good example of that was boots the chemist which was a company with a head office in nottingham for one hundred sixty one years and moved in switzerland where we had revenues of around eighty nine million pounds in corporation tax and they reduced that then to nine million so burden is then placed on the u.k. tax payer increases in income tax of the eighty or other forms of taxation it has to be found and we're the ones paying for it other nations governments scrutinize

every overseas bed france for example argues that it's in their national interest to prevent key technologies falling into foreign hands so while it's often difficult for a british company to buy abroad over thirty billion pounds worth of domestic companies made their way into foreign hands last year last month westminster said that it wouldn't change any laws but would take a greater interest in foreign acquisition the only thing is by the time they get around to it there might be nothing left to sell. art see london. flying in the face of international criticism is row has announced its plans to build more settlement homes and occupied east jerusalem it brings the total number of settlements approved in the last few weeks to five in the whole files and the details now from its policy it. what we're witnessing is that israel is continuing with its expansion of settlements and this new announcement is that it has approved
1:06 am
the building of some one thousand two hundred new secure homes in globe which is a neighborhood in east jerusalem across the green line it comes in less than a month after israel's controversial statement that it was planning to build in the one corridor all which links jerusalem to the west bank and this is a real line for many states and certainly we've witnessed that kind of criticism and condemnation from the international community since the palestinians went to the united nations several weeks ago for upgraded statehood there have been some five and a half thousand new secure homes announced in terms of what the israelis were building israel has undergone as i say strong international criticism for these announcements with many in the international community voicing their intense displeasure at these actions by the jewish state in fact the israel's closest ally which is the united states in a rare and blunt move said it is well was engaging in to quote
1:07 am
a pattern of provocative action by continuing with settlement expansionist plans domestically the kind of statements that the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is making with his proposal and plan to go ahead with the settlement building is current favorite among the israeli left it certainly is appealing to right wing voters and according to the polls he is likely to win the next parliamentary election so these kind of statements are playing into the election that are said to happen about a month from now at the same time netanyahu has largely rebuffed the criticism from the international community saying that you receive them is the eternal capital of the state of israel and will continue to build there a united to see them he says expresses a wide national agreement and certainly this is the kind of sentiment that is feeding into the israeli public and then there is of course some. school of thought that points back to two thousand and five when the israelis withdrew from settlements in the gaza strip with some critics asking whether or not all of the
1:08 am
feel at the moment will ultimately lead to the same kind of conclusion the question of whether or not in the future will have to withdraw from the settlements that it is announcing today it's planning on building. actions and these are fast approaching say there's going to be much more talk about the settlers settlements is definitely within the vocabulary of talking into the center right voters so i believe that between now and twenty second of january we'll see only an evasion of the discourse from the five minister of the issue of settlements i hope that those will stay only messages which are connected to elections and not to the practices on the ground the five hundred thousand are being divided all two hundred thousand with in jerusalem and there's a total agreement with the palestinian side in the negotiations in the past that
1:09 am
all the two hundred will stay inside is why really the delineate the borders of jerusalem then we have the three hundred thousand in the west bank those approximately two hundred thousand out of them which are living closer just sent to the green line would become part of israel within the exchange of territories and a minority of approximately eighty to one hundred thousand israelis which will have to be evacuated as happened in two thousand and five with our previous government of. which israel evacuated approximately ten thousand which was just a good example for the fact that we can make it so between us and peace will be standing one hundred thousand israelis which will have to go and be accepted and will be. compensated etc i believe that this is something which goes with the national interest of the majority of israelis. a divisive election campaign is looming over a trip with

a new parliamentary vote now due to take place within the next two months it comes after president morsi signed into the country's fast post mubarak constitution passed in a two stage referendum. was confirmed on tuesday after an official program to the allegations of vote rigging turned up nothing but a reaction a furious opposition protesters took to the streets of cairo liberals claim the islamic draft constitution betrays the revolution and sidelines the rights of women and minorities in egypt and one middle east expert told us in the islamists will lose power they fail to make the people's demands. this is the first time in the constitution that you have the president cannot. win and cannot. you have a prime minister who is actually empowered to take decisions without going back to the president so it empowers other centers as other elected civilian centers of power but you have. democratic elections and it brought the parties to become the
1:11 am
majority what will happen if these islamist parties could not deliver on the promises but not have a guarantee about the security about the economic conditions i think what will happen the people will vote against them if you look at the voting behavior in egypt in the parliamentary elections around seventy percent voted for islamist. parties and in the presidential elections around fifty one percent to their vote is declining and going down mainly because they are not the opposition and the more they have to deliver on the promises they cannot just for most while the and not delivered so now people have expectations and they can control politicians by voting. the u.s. government spreads its military wings the pentagon is seeking the support of us no make it for a draw on sale just a few minutes find out who's in the line to benefit from the cutting edge craft. of the last presidential debates in
